Comanches and typhoid.
29 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Dwayne Hickman has the title role in this Wagon Train episode though I'm not sure why because in the end this is Richard Carlson's story.

The Wagon Train is stuck with a potential outbreak of typhoid fever that has confined Terry Wilson to a sickbed. With the Train stuck there, a wounded Robert Fuller comes in saying there's a big war party of Comanches hot on his trail.

A cavalry patrol led by Lieutenant Richard Carlson and Sergeant Mort Mills arrives, but their numbers won't really add too much. And Carlson and Mills are at loggerheads in any event.

That's when Mills recognizes young settler Dwayne Hickman as someone who deserted during the Civil War. The desertion requires some explanation which I can't go into here lest I spoil things. Still it might not matter as the Comanches might settle everyone's earthly problems soon.

A nice episode about men and women facing an impending doom including the Wagon Train regulars.
